Henna also known as mehndi has now been used and practiced for over 5000 years and is 100% natural. It is a temporary body art which is derived from a plant called Lawsonia inermis which naturally stains the skin. The leaves of this plant are dried, ground into a fine powder form then mixed with ingredients like, water, sugar, lavender oil, eucalyptus oil and tea tree oil. These ingredients than naturally intensify the color of the dye when it stains your skin. Typically the stain color will range from an orange, red, dark red and burgundy color. 

The cost is $10 for a small piece and $15 for a medium piece.
